ATLANTA | Three Alliance Center | 122m | 400ft | 30 fl | U/C



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Proposed Buckhead Tower To Feature Faceted Glass Walls

Quote:
Three Alliance Center, a proposed 30-story office tower in Buckhead, could introduce magically shimmering skin to Atlanta's high-rise architecture. Technically, the exterior is called a "faceted glass curtain wall system" and would be a first in Atlanta, according to commercial real estate firm Tishman Speyer, which has begun marketing the property. The building would offer 500,000 square feet of leasable space in a submarket that hasn't seen a substantial injection of offices for several years. If built, it would stand at the intersection of Ga. Highway 400 and Lenox Road.

This tower complements the two existing ones at Alliance Center:

Shimmering Three Alliance Center Gets a Groundbreaking Date



Quote:
Renderings of the proposed Three Alliance Center in Buckhead have dazzled with their unusual design and glimmering facade, but as Atlanta has learned all too well, proposals do not equal buildings. Fortunately, New York-based developers Tishman Speyer have announced that construction on the 30-story tower will begin August 1 with a goal of completing it by September 2016. As its name implies, the $175 million office tower will be the third in the Alliance Center trio, which also includes the already-completed 20-story One Alliance and 30-story Two Alliance buildings. The new addition will be the largest office building built in the Atlanta market since 2008, with 500,000 leasable square feet. When Three Alliance is completed, nearly 10 percent of Buckhead's 17 million square feet of office space will be located in the trio of towers.

It looks too massive. I'd rather see a more slender and taller volume

Shimmery Buckhead Tower Signals Return of Cool Architecture



Quote:
Be ready for more construction cranes to rise in Buckhead, as Tishman Speyer's Three Alliance Center — finally not another residential tower — has approval to go skyward, reports BisNow. Ground broke in August for the 32-story building, the final component in the three-building Alliance Center complex. It will face Lenox Road across from Phipps Plaza and will feature around 500,000 square feet of office space and a distinctive, shimmery fašade. Designed by locally-based, nationally-prominent firm Mack Scogin Merrill Elam — the duo behind One Museum Place in Midtown — the building could signal a trend (fingers crossed) away from architectural brain-drain in the city. For the firm, the two projects mark a reentry of their high-profile builds in Atlanta, after they'd disappeared from the scene following the completion of their otherworldly Buckhead Branch Library in the 1980s.

With foundation work done and permits granted, visible work should begin soon on the site.

Agreed entirely. I've never quite understood why, outside of select projects, the podium-tower concept doesn't seem to exist in the US. Skyscrapers always seem to be really wide and taper exactly down to street level, causing their design to be very bulky. Someone once said it had to do with fire codes but I have a hard time believing that.
